May 28th, 2013 | Posted by DT in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on Looking Towards the Future of Vending)

eVendingThe NAMA OneShow wrapped up recently, and the wide variety of vending innovations on display left a bold impression on the dispensing business as a whole. We are at a very exciting time for the industry, as technology is allowing combo vending machines to do things they simply never could before.

Emily Refermat of Vending Marketwatch recently published a multi-part feature article titled “How Technology Will Change Vending.” The in-depth piece touches on many topics that are very big in our world, from the makeup machines to the way in which customers interact with them. Like computers and smartphones, vending machines are becoming more instant and personalized than ever, and a large part of Refermat’s feature story focused on how vendors can drive sales with cashless transactions. We live in an age where consumers are used to immediate gratification, and it is important for vending operators to keep up with this customer need.

Creative Chefs Come Up with Gourmet Vending Machine

May 20th, 2013 | Posted by DT in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on Creative Chefs Come Up with Gourmet Vending Machine)

eVendingWhile vending machines have been serving snacks for decades, they have grown to encompass an ever-growing group of famous foods. And while everything from fruits to salads are available in today’s vending products, the industry hasn’t quite yet reached the level of quality that a restaurant provides. However, a Tennessee chef is looking to change all that with a brand-new innovation.

Step onto the Livonia campus of Schoolcraft Community College, and you just might see their brand new gourmet vending machine. While most colleges are littered with standard combo vending machines, this device vends a variety of meals ranging from pasta and chicken to stir fry. According to chef Shawn Loving, this machine is the only one like it in the entire country. . Once students choose their gourmet dish, they simply press a button and their pre-wrapped meal is automatically heated up for them. Free of preservatives, the kryo-vacing process that seals the meals gives them a shelf life of 4-6 months. This unique device started serving up meals in February, with new ones on the way.

The folks at eVending are certainly impressed with this vending innovation, and we look forward to seeing more like it pop up. Of course, if you are looking to go down the more traditional route, our vending machines for sale will make a perfect fit for any establishment!

Picture this: You just selected your favorite soda at your local combo vending machine. You reach down to grab your beverage, only to be snatched by a human hand!

The Vegas pranksters got everyday passersby to reach into their vending machine under the pretense that they had a hurt back and couldn’t bend down. When the unsuspecting victims of the joke felt a human hand grab theirs, the result was almost universally some sort of surprised shriek.

New Laws Cracking Down on Tobacco Vending Machines

May 6th, 2013 | Posted by DT in Combo vending machines - (Comments Off on New Laws Cracking Down on Tobacco Vending Machines)

eVendingWhile the vending machine business continues to expand to sell everything from hot meals to expensive electronics, there is one product the industry is trying to phase out. While cigarette vending machines are almost as old as the business itself, new laws could make the tobacco dispensers obsolete.

According to ThisIsJersey.com, new legislation could potentially ban not only tobacoo vending machines, but also prominent displays of the product within stores. The potential law was voted 43 to two in favor of the tobacco ban. If successful, cigarette vending products will have to be removed from their respective establishments over the next 18 months. Perhaps the biggest part of tobacco marketing is the bevy of cigarette packs behind convenience store counters, so their removal would surely have a huge impact on the industry.

People will likely be split over this potential ban, as the move helps promote an overall healthy country while making cigarettes less acessible for smokers. It will be interesting to see how the legislation pans out, as well as whether or not store owners will replace their cigarette machines with more traditional combo vending machines. Even with the industry evolving every single day, this story proves the importance of making sure today’s machines are vending the right products.
